Kimchi Pop is that perfect fun, casual, BYOB Korean spot with plentiful gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options. I was quite impressed with how inclusive they are of us plant-based eaters.
Spanish-Mediterranean restaurant, Papa Cenar, is now serving a Spanish-American brunch in addition to their tapas style dinner! It’s a smaller menu with more traditional American options like French toast while still holding onto their Spanish influence with their Spanish omelet (which I like more than American omelets). Brunch is a laid-back affair at Papa Cenar with Velvet Underground casually playing in the background making it really feel like a Sunday morning.
ROOH is one of my favorite new restaurants that has opened this past year. You can find extremely unique dishes where so much attention is paid to detail with every bite, every ingredient, every texture. Every dish we tried was perfectly composed and insanely delicious – experiences like these are rare so treat yourself and try this spot because you will not be disappointed!
Namaste is there for when you don’t want to leave your apartment because it’s too cold and you want some hot, flavorful food. They have a wide assortment of vegetarian and vegan options that are Indian and Nepalese. The flavors will not disappoint.
I have decided to take my passion for coffee, tea, and Logan Square on the road through Airbnb Experiences! I have recently launched my Logan Square Coffee/Tea Tour where I have partnered up with some of the most intriguing and unique coffee shops and tea spots in the Logan Square neighborhood.
I found Papa Cenar to be a vegetable-forward restaurant. They not only had veggie-centric small plates but really know how to celebrate the scrumptious flavors and crunchy textures of vegetables.
A restaurant of this caliber will cost you an arm and a leg, but it truly is a delightful experience with excellent service and memorable food. I will always look back on this experience fondly. I don’t tend to go to places like Spiaggia but I had an incredible food night here and recommend it for special occasions.
The Gundis is a Kurdish Outpost in Wrigleyville serving affordable and flavorful Kurdish food that can’t be found anywhere else in Chicago.
Good Fortune is one of those pricier small plates restaurants but they have promising, innovative and eclectic flavors. I would definitely go back here again when I want to feel sexy eating pasta in a dimly lit supper club again.
